4 Ways to Donate & Support A Cause You Like

Do you feel passionate about a cause and want to know how you can make a difference? It can be easier than you think to make an impact and give back to the causes you love. 

Whether you are passionate about marine life conservation, wish to see less trash in parks and at the beach, want to help kids have better access to education worldwide… you name it! There are so many causes that are important and the good news is that there are different ways you can support them! 

Whether you are on a budget, don’t have a lot of time, not sure who to turn to, we’ve got you!

Here are 4 ways you can support:

1. Donate what you can

Every dollar makes a difference and donating money can create a huge impact. You can often choose to make a one-time donation to your favorite cause, or you could consider a monthly subscription. 

With a scheduled donation, you can make an impact month after month! Think of donating a certain percentage of what you earn each month too! This is a great way to keep track of your own finances and to keep your donations consistent, you can also look at topping up your donation if you start earning more.

If you worry that you can’t afford it, know that even $1 a week can help. The more people that consider charitable donations the better.

One organization that helps you with all of the above is 1% for the Planet. 1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions by committing to spend 1% of their income. After all, not everyone has a lot of money to spend, but everyone has 1%, whatever this one may be! 

2. Organize a fundraising event

Other ways to share financial resources with charities is to consider setting up fundraisers or sponsorship.

Just like you may encourage someone to see a movie you love or go to your favorite restaurant, tell your loved ones about your cause and urge them to join you in support.

Fundraisers are a great way to do this. Share why you’ve chosen to support a particular charity, set your fundraising goal, and off you go! There are many creative ways to raise money.

You can also organize birthday fundraising, instead of requesting gifts invite people to donate to a cause you love instead.

The great thing about organizing fundraising events is not only are you sharing a meaningful moment with your loved ones, but you are raising awareness for causes others may not have even considered before. If every dollar counts, raising awareness is just as important.

No matter how big or small, charitable community drives and fundraisers can have a big impact. Organize a toy, clothing, or food drive and bring people together for a great cause.

Participating in a charity run, cycle, walk, or another form of sport or challenge is a great way to push yourself whilst raising funds for a cause you care about. Not only do you get to challenge yourself, work out, and socialize, but you get to join a community supporting each other to achieve a common goal for the greater good. It’s a win-win!

You don’t have to donate money to make a difference. 

There are many ways to contribute to the causes you like. Your time and energy are just as impactful as any monetary donation.

3. Volunteering

A lot of charities and local organizations run solely on kind volunteers who choose to donate their time. Offering your skills and time pro-bono provides a powerful and rewarding contribution to your favorite cause. Volunteering is also a vital way for charities to reduce their overall operating costs.

 

Volunteering creates a natural sense of achievement and makes you feel as though you really have made a difference. You get to experience and witness what is really happening behind the scenes and on the ground with charities, often meeting those that benefit directly from the causes themselves. Being hands-on is one of the best ways to understand the issue and better learn how to create a change. Maybe consider inviting friends to volunteer with you? Create memories that last and create real positive change in the process.

Volunteering is a great way to cultivate community, connect with like-minded individuals and you get to see exactly how your contribution benefits the cause. 

4. Support companies who give back to the causes you like

Another way of supporting your favorite causes is to buy from and/or support companies that give back to charity. Philanthropic business is extremely powerful, with some companies matching employee donations and/or directly donating to certain causes. These can be monetary donations or product-based.

When purchasing from businesses that give back, you can support a good cause and shop for what you need! Another win-win opportunity. Next time you shop, check out if who you are choosing to buy from offers any support to the causes you care about.

 

SellSage is proud to work with Eco-Soap Bank whose mission is to help save lives across the world by making soap accessible to children in need. They collect leftover soaps from manufacturers and hotels and employ women in developing countries to recycle them into clean and affordable soap bars for their communities. Since 2015, Eco-Soap Bank has reached over six million children in 20+ developing countries. 

With the launch of our new soap range, Sasya, we are proud to be a part of this movement:

For every six Sasya bars sold we will donate one to Eco-Soap Bank.

That means that when you purchase a bar of soap from us, you are also helping children on the other side of the world. This is not your regular bar soap! We are also 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan, and handmade.

STAY TUNED – WE ARE LAUNCHING THIS MONTH!
